How Much Do
Dental Implants Cost?
The most common question asked about dental implants is, “How much do dental implants cost?” Dental implants are a quality investment and when done by an experienced dentist, can last a lifetime.
Though the initial costs of other tooth replacement treatments will seem less expensive than implants, there are several factors to take into consideration. Crowns, bridges, and dentures, for example, are temporary and will need to be maintained and replaced repeatedly over your lifetime. Though they cost less up front, they certainly are not cheap. Remember too, that everything increases in price over time, so what you paid for your crown the first time around likely will not be what you pay the next time or the next. Another disadvantage to alternate tooth replacement options is that no other treatment positively affects your bone like a dental implant. As soon as you lose a tooth, you begin to lose bone. This can cause your face to ‘sink’, giving an older appearance. A dental implant acts like a tooth root keeping your jawbone healthy, encouraging bone to grow and thrive. Think of it as mini facelift, helping to maintain a more youthful look.
Another important thing to keep in mind when considering the cost of dental implants, is that you’re not just improving your smile, you’re enhancing the quality of your life. Often when your teeth are an issue, your overall health suffers. One example of this, is as a result of being unable to chew food properly or having to avoid certain foods all together, your nutrition is neglected. There is a freedom that comes when you are free to smile, and laugh without the embarrassment. It unburdens you from the weight of always having to think about your teeth, can I eat this or that, are my dentures going to slip, the pain, always being conscious of wanting to hide your teeth.
Comparing Ways to Replace Your Teeth and The Costs
Here we show you alternative tooth replacement options, their costs and how they compare to 4M Dental Implants. The prices listed are industry averages. As with most dental procedures, prices vary depending on your unique oral health situation: smoking, gum disease, necessary extractions, misaligned teeth, recessed gums, too much gums, etc. In order to get an accurate quote on your procedure, it is important you come in and have your dentist evaluate your specific dental circumstance.
4M Dental Implants Are the Best Way To Replace Missing Teeth
Whether it’s one tooth or all your teeth, 4M Dental Implants are hands down the best way to replace missing teeth. When looking into what they cost, they tend to leave one with a sticker shock, they are a big investment and they aren’t cheap, but when you understand what you’re getting and why, you’ll soon realize 4M Dental Implants are a worthwhile, lifetime investment.
4M Dental Implants stay in your mouth, there’s no hassle of taking them in and out. They remain securely in place so you need not worry about them slipping, embarrassing you at an inopportune moment like dentures do. With any treatment other than implants, you’ll have to be careful as to what you eat, and with dentures you lose a lot of your sense of taste due to the bulky palate, but with dental implants, you can enjoy and taste all your favorite foods. Nothing acts, looks, or feels more like real teeth than 4M Dental Implants.

The Costs of Dental Implants
A dental implant is comprised of essentially 3 parts: the titanium implant, the abutment and the crown. Our prices are inclusive of these parts, however, no two patients are the same and each treatment is unique to that patient. With this in mind the end price of your procedure may be different from someone else’s. Complex cases involving bone grafts or extractions, for example, may incur additional charges. The prices we give here are about what you can expect to pay, however, not until you come in and are examined, will we be able to give you a final cost.
What’s Included: The Details
Titanium has long been used in the body and in dentistry specifically. It’s strong, light weight and biocompatible. Expertly placed implants will ensure a successful, strong foundation for you new teeth.
Once your jaw and gums have healed, and your implants have successfully fused with your bone, you’ll come back in to receive your abutments and teeth. The abutments attach to the implant, then the crown/bridge is secured to the abutment. This combination provides a secure bite. Please note: a custom abutment will incur additional costs.
TWO SETS OF TEETH
The day of your surgery you will go home with with new teeth. Your healing teeth or ‘temporaries’, or ‘flipper’ for a single tooth, are what you’ll wear while you’re healing from your surgery. These teeth will look very close to what your finals will look like. This is a valuable step because as is common after surgery, your gums are likely to be a little swollen and need time to subside and return to their normal size. If you were to receive your finals the day of your surgery, you might discover, that after your gums and bone heal, they don’t fit as expected. With time to get to know what it’s like to live with your new teeth, you’ll have ample opportunity to make adjustments, aesthetically or otherwise, so that your finals are absolutely perfect.
For your final teeth, a single implant is a beautiful porcelain crown and for our 4M patients, only the finest acrylic is used, unless you’ve chosen to upgrade* to zirconia. *Upgrades incur additional costs.
TITANIUM REENFORCED BRIDGE
The titanium reenforced bridge is for our traditional 4M patients. A permanent custom titanium bar is milled into your final hybrid bridge(s). The bar reenforces your arch making it stronger than ever, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods.
The strength for a zirconia arch comes from the zirconia material itself and does not require the titanium bar.
Any necessary CT scans are included in the initial cost, plus all post op visits. Your first annual cleaning in also covered.
LIFETIME WARRANTY ON YOUR IMPLANTS
WE GUARANTEE OUR WORK! Stay current with all your cleanings at All Bright Dental and you can enjoy a lifetime warranty on your implants. Please note: the warranty covers just the implants. Abutments, crowns, bridges or the titanium bar are not covered by the warranty.

We are competitively priced and stand proudly behind our work and the materials we use. Come in and talk to us about our in-house financing and third party financing options. We work closely with Wells Fargo, Green Sky Financing, CareCredit, and Lending Club. Dental insurance doesn’t often cover dental implants as they see it as a cosmetic procedure, but some are starting to recognize the health benefits – we will work with you and your insurance to get you whatever coverage is possible.
Some dental implant centers will quote one price for everyone. The ‘one price fits all’ quote is often a worst case scenario amount, which might be more than you actually need. It’s impossible to know exactly what you need without seeing you because 4M Dental Implants are customized for you. Keep in mind, if you find yourself wondering why another dentist is offering considerably lower pricing, and could it be too good to be true, it just might be. Some significantly reduce their prices to entice new patients because they aren’t getting the work. This calls into question the experience of the dentist or quality of the practice. Or other practices may be going for volume, which means you never see the doctor they’re advertising or you lose the personal touch and are just pushed down to the next stop in the factory line. The downside to a shoddy surgery could be awful: painful, costly and unattractive.
“Dr. Mohtashami fixed any dental problems I was having first,” says Maria, “then, during another visit he moved forward with some laser gum contouring and placed twelve veneers in my upper smile zone. I have to admit that I’m a big chicken when it comes to dentistry, and I opted for the IV sedation. Sedation dentistry is a beautiful thing. What I remember of the procedure is that I was very comfortable and happy. I think the results look fantastic and I receive compliments nearly every single day about my infectious smile. I love it! Thank you Dr. Mohtashami.”
“Fortunately, when I met with Dr. Mohtashami for the complimentary consultation, I became very comfortable with him. He is a true gentleman and helped me to relax. His first and only concern was for my comfort. During our meeting he personally showed me many of his own before and after smile makeover photos. We discussed a few of the cases in detail so we both got a feeling of what I liked and didn’t like. I was able to get a good sense of what to expect before, during and after the procedure. I couldn’t believe that I could have a complete smile makeover in just a few visits spread out over a few weeks.”
“I knew exactly what type of smile I wanted, and I never had a doubt that Dr. Mohtashami and his fantastic team would deliver. They did everything possible to make me comfortable throughout the process, and I think my new smile looks great. Thank you Dr Mohtashami!”
“Dr. Mohtashami was kind and gentle, explained everything in such detail and answered every question we could think of,” says Roxie. “We knew we were in the right place once we met him. He’s awesome. Mom had six veneers placed in her upper smile zone to correct crowding and color and four in the lower. It only took four in my upper smile zone to close my gap and make my smile look completely natural. We both love the end result and the procedure was easy. Our friends, family and salon patrons have been astounded by the difference this simple procedure has made for each of us!”
“Dr. Mohtashami and his team are awesome. They are so friendly and professional. They took the time to care at every interval of my treatment. It was all about me; my comfort, my fears and making sure that I received the absolute best medical treatment possible. Dr. Mohtashami is truly a doctor, not just a dentist. He made everything as perfect as he could possibly make it; my bite, my gums; every single tooth. As someone who’s been working in the medical field for more than 15 years, my hat is off to him. He’s simply the best!”
